Good morning sirs,

Your book sounds very interesting! What level of experience and/or education (with Java) would you recommend a person have before attempting to study your book for the exam? Look forward to your response!

Cheers,
John David Barry

Some basic programming experience is essential. It need not be in Java, but can be another programming language.
Understanding of variables, expressions and basic control constructs would go a long way.
But it can be a tough going, which I am sure many wanderers through the certification landscape can vouch for.
Of course, the more programming experience you have the more accessible the material is.
Just reading the book is not enough. You gotta get down and do some coding.
And nothing beats real life programming experience. :-)

As a Java greenhorn you might benefit from reading a book on Java first (rather than a certification study guide). Many alternatives are available: Head First Java, Thinking in Java, Core Java, Deitel & Deitel, and so on. Other great resources are this forum and the Beginning Java forum of course and you also have the (free) Oracle Java Tutorials.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
